 Has Mines that are Paying Dividends and Hun-',  dreds of Properties that can be  Made  Dividend  Paying Mines.'  SIXTH   raAR.--.ffO. 3.  NELSON,   BRITISH   COLUMBIA, SATURDAY, DECEMBER   LS, 189"  Has   Three   Smelters   in   Successful   Operatioh,,  and  Enough  Ore' in Sight to   Run  Several   More.  TWO   DOLMKK   A   Vi:;\>;.  CONDITION   OP   CIVIC   ACCOUNTS.  A Very Creditable Showing 'Which Has Been  Denounced by the Nelson Miner.  A bird that befouls its own nest is unclean : a newspaper that belies its own  town i.s unwise. The Miner,' of Nelson, is  unwise. Last week it stated that the  civic affairs of Nelson were in a bad way.  It gave no facts : simply "supposed " that  its mere statements would be accepted as  facts.  The people of Nelson know that the  statements made by the Miner are not  worthy of even passing notice; but they  also know that if such statements are  given circulation on the outside, the  credit and .-standing of the town will be  hurt.  On the 80th day of November, the city  oi' Nelson had $2,S:M.(iO in the Bank of  Montreal over aud above all checks issued  ���it"actually had $-1,181.0.) in the bank,  checks aggregating $1,8*17.-13 not having  been presented for payment.  Since the 1st day of December, accounts  aggregating  $4,013.00 have* been  passed,  and revenue aggregating $725.-15 has been  collected.   The  unpaid  accounts against  the city and supplies that will be required  during   the   year   IS97 will not aggregate  $1,000.    To this amount should be added  $502.50, amount of salaries due on December 31st.   As an offset against this apparent deficit of $2(51(5.9!) are the sums due  and   payable   to   the   city,   namely   the  amount  clue   from   the province for real  estate  taxes  collected, and the amounts  due for  water  rates and  licenses���sums  that will aggregate $1000.   The city has  on hand water and sewer pipe and water  pipe supplies that cost $2,500. Or $3,500 in  bills  receivable  and  supplies, as against  $2(5-10.!)!) bills payable.    More: the interest  on the debentures, which is due and payable on a date after the term of the present council expires, and one-half of the  annual amount of the sinking fund���$2,150  in all���is on deposit in the Bank of Montreal.  These figures prove that the city council have been  prudent in conducting the  business of the city. The business of a  city is much the same as tlie business of a  linn or of a corporation": if conducted  conservatively and prudently, the city's  standing and credit will be good. Tin-;  TKiuuxii maintains that the a Hairs of the  City of Nelson have been conducted in  such a way.     ���"���������   -      '. .'���   ���  Should Raise the Wages.  Now that the attention of  the federal  government has been directed to the hardships under which the navvies employed  upon  the  Crow's  Nest  railway  labor, a  move should be made by the press of the  province to induce the 'federal, government to oblige the railway company to  raise the wages from $1.50 to $2.00 per  day. A state-aided, if-indeed it be not  a state-constructed, railway like . ��� tlr-i  Crow's Nest road should not be permitted  to people the province of "British- Columbia with paupers. There is no chance for  the thousands of men that will be employed upon this road of saving enough  out of their wages at the present rate to  keep themselves two weeks after the road  is completed. Since the federal government has seen fit to practically build the  Crow's Nest road for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company it certainly has  the right to see that the company pays a  living rate of wages, so that when the  work is finished British Columbia will  -not have an army of unemployed paupers  on its hands. Another thing which should  be investigated is the rule enforced by  contractor Haney of allowing but two  elassificationsfor work bysub-contraetors.  The New Inspector of Mines.  It is reported that the provincial government has appointed James McGregor,  M.P.P., for Nanaimo, to be inspector of  mines. There are many men throughout  southern Kootenay who know more about  mining than does McGregor, but then  they have never rendered the Turner  government the service that McGregor  has in always voting right in the legislature for three years. This appointment  is certainly in accord with the rule that  one good turu deserves another. As for  Kootenay, it got along fairly well for several years without any mining inspector,  aud it will doubtless manage to struggle  aloug until the new man learns something  of the requirements of his oflice.  Corbin's Line Into Boundary.  Messrs. Bodvvell & Irving, solicitors for  D. O. Corbin, are giving notice that they  will apply to the Dominion parliament at  the next session, for a charter to build a  railway from a point on the Spokane &  Northern railway through the Christina  lake section to the Kettle river, thence up  this river to Grand Forks, thence across  the international boundary line at or near  Carson, and proceed into the Colville Indian  reservation,  presumably to  Eureka  camp.       ___________  Took Jewelry For Stock.  A warrant was issued in Ottawa on  Wednesday for the arrest of Hubert Stevenson, president of the Granite Creek  Mining Company. Stevenson is charged  with obtaining money under false pretences.   Tt is claimed  that Stevenson ob  tained a $1,200 diamond ring from Miss  Christina Christie, of Ottawa: Stevenson  says he obtained the ring from Miss Christie in exchange for seven shares in the  mine which he represented. The seven  shares, he told Miss Christie, were worth  $700. Miss Christie said he guaranteed  that, the investment would realize 40 per'  cent on her money. /  A Pertinent Inquiry.  Is the (.old Commissioner's office at Nelson  run   in   the- interests of a  clique at  Victoria?   On the lith day of June, 1807,  the Corporation  of   the City  of  Xelson  posted  notices, as required  by law, that  it intended in thirty days to' apply to the  gold commissioner at Nelson for a grant  of 100 miner's inches of water from Anderson creek, the water to be used for household, (ire and general uses.   At the expiration of thirty days the application was  duly made and the registration fees paid.  The grant was duly entered in the water  rights record book the same day, but, was  not  signed   by   the   gold   commissioner.  The next day the gold commissioner informed  the  mayor that  the application  would have to be referred to the authorities at  Victoria.    He did not say that a  protest had been filed against the application : in fact he led the mayor to believe  that referring the application to Victoria  was a mere matter of form.   Now after  five  months  time   has  elapsed   the city  authorities are told that the Nelson City  Land   &    Improvement   Company   have  filed a protest against the application.  The Inconvenience of Servitude.  The Rossland Miner has got into trouble  over its commendation of premier Turner's defence of his action iu becoming a  decoy duck, for British capital. The  Mirier pronounced premier Turner's defence " a complete refutation of the blackguardly and baseless innuendoes of the  Opposition.'" In doing this the Miner  gave the lie'to its own correspondent in  London. Iu a recent letter to the Miner  this correspondent denounced the actions  of premier Turner and Hon. C. _. Pooley,  and informed the Miner that "it is a puzzle to those interested iu British Columbian affairs in Loudon how they can have  induced Mr. Pooley and Mr. Turner to  lend their names to such undertakings."  It is evident that the editor of the Miner  failed to notify its London correspondent  that the Miner could no longer hold an.  honest opinion of its own.  LAND   SALE   AGGREGATED    $24,440.  There Was a Lively Competition and the Government Realized Full Value.  '   Wednesday's sale of government town  lots, which took place in the court-house,  was well  attended.   \n view of the fact  that it was the final sale of government  property the bidding was spirited and exceptionally   good    prices   were   realized.'  The value of the lots sold wa- realized in  every instance, bur, it is significant that  the  upset  price  which was placed  upon  the property at former sales was not realized, except in a few instances.   The most  notable exception  to this was  the price  realized for  the  lots  in  fractional block  No. SI.    At the last sale no one would bid  the upset price of $100 which  wa-. placed  upon lots I to 7 inclusive, but at  Wednesday's sale'the seven lots brought $010.'  The sale was conducted by Joshua  Da vies, of Victoria, and aggregated $21,-  110. By the terms of the sale one-third  was cash and the balance becomes due in  three and six months, with (5 per cent, per  annum added for interest. The following  is a list of the lots sold, the price realized  and the names of the purchasers :  nik.vo.  i;  ���TROUBLE   BREWING   FOR   SMELTERS.  NW.MI-- (II." I-L-CCIIASKK.  P.

MeCulloeh   Is Your Name on the List?  livery Jiritish subject who has resided  in this province for 12 months should see  to it that he has his name placed upon  the voters' list. Those whose names are  upon the list in some other portion of the  province should have their names transferred if they wish to vote in this electoral  district. It is upon the size of the, voters'  list that West Kootenay's claim for additional representation will be largely determined. Call at the court house and  have your name entered, or send the same  in upon a proper application form. The  following are the qualifications: British  subject, male, 21 years, 12 months' residence in province, and in the electoral district in which he claims-to vote for two  months of that oeriod immediately previous to,sending in his claim to vote.  Gold Strike in Omineca.  ,.'��� The latest gold strike reported is in the  Omineca district on Tom creek. Here J.  D. Wells and his partners, Messrs. May  aud Lyon, have located two and a half  miles of very rich placer ground, going'  from $1 to $1.25 to the pan. There is  eight feet of gravel. Wells says it pays  about $20 per day per man. The gold is  very coarse and of high value, nuggets going in many cases as high as $20 in value  being found. , Wells is of the opinion that  it will run as high as $-1.50 to; the cubic  yard. For two or three years the. trio  have been prospecting in the Omineca  district. Their efforts were not rewarded  until this fall, when the rich strike was  made on Tom creek. Mr. Wells is the  mining recorder aud special constable for  the Omineca district.  Kootenay's Great Mail Service.  Hewit Bostock. M. P., should use what  influence lie may have with the postmaster-general to secure a competent official  in the place of postoflice inspector Fletcher, of Victoria. For the past two weeks  Nelson has had daily communication with  Slocan City over the Slocan river railway,  yet it has not occurred to this official in  Victoria that Slocan City mail for Nelson  could be delivered daily if sent over this  route. At present, instead of coming direct to Nelson in a couple of hours, mail  matter from Slocan City is sent to Nelson  via Nakusp twice a week.  The Development of the Dorothy.  D. C. Clark, one of the original owners  of the Ruth mine, who is now engaged iu  developing the Dorothy, a claim located  over the brow of the hill around from the  Ruth, says there is now a 320 foot tunnel  in on the Dorothy, and the ore is identical  with that of the Ruth. He is working  three men, and recently sold sufficient  treasury stock to insure the pushing of  work for six months at least. The same  company own the Montgomery claim  near the Velvet, and it is making an excellent showing.  New Westminster Election.  At the municipal election in New Westminster on Monday, alderman Owens was  elected mayor. The mayoralty vote stood  Owens 105, Keary ISI, and Hill 10-1. The  aldermen elected were Messrs. Gifford,  McKen/.ie, Boggs and Cunningham.  T. II. Donald   "<Ar. N. Shaw   U. .1. HrowsLei-   John A. Turner   do    A. Ford   K.Day :. ..  A.-'ord      \V. P. Robinson   John ICnudson      .1. H.

Colorado' papers contain  (h.-tnnouu-e-  ment  chat   the   recent,  meetings of   the  smelter  interests   of   the   United  States  were held more for the purpose of perfei-t-  'ing a trust than for protecting  the -imrtlt.-  ing industry  against", the brokers in r.he  metal markets.    It is now admitted  that  the meeting was for the purpose of agreeing upon rates for ore treatment and  to  prevent the possibility of rate-cutting.  On behalf of the smelters it is contended  that the capacity of the smelters is greater than' the ore supplies and that this lias  led to the usual competition.   The profits  in the business have been wiped out.    All  the lead smelters would have completed a'  trust  long ago  had   not   the   Omaha Ac  Grant  Co.   refused  to enter  it.    As  this  company does the largest business any  trust   would   be  incomplete  without  it.  The Kansas City Smelting Ac Refining Co.  took the lead in forming the trust and it  is generally  understood   that every lead  smelter in the country  now,  except  the  Omaha & Grant and the Globe, belong to it.  One thing that has com plicated theprolem  is the existi-nce of many sampling works  which buy ores in small or large lots and  -sell to smelters.   The samplers located in  - thecampsare greatconveniencestominers,  because they furnish a home market for  any sized  lot of ore. ��� In fact they have  been one very important factor inbuild-  ing up and developing the mining country.    Now the  smelters  have adopted a  schedule of prices, and agreed to boycott,  or refuse to   buy ore from  any sampler  which does not abide  by  the'law  they  have fixed.     Whether this changed order  of things  will   be  accepted   by the mine  owners   depends   very   much   upon'  the  action taken   at the conference of mine  owners now  being held in Denver, Colorado.    The mine owners were in session  this week, but no report of their proceedings has been giveu out.  That Wonderful Mail Service.  To   THR. EDITOR   OF   TlIK   TRIHUXK:     111  your issue of 4th iust. (to hand-here on the  Kith) I notice an announcement of a reduction of postage rates to all parts of  the British Empire. While welcoming  this great reduction of 30 per cent, J can  not but feel that the postal department  would do well, if the business is such ti  financial success, to spend a little more.  VtToney at home. Here, within 13 miles of  Nelson, on the shores of navigable water,  with a mail boat passing six times weekly  in either direction, and another steamboat stopping on an average eight times a  week or of teu'er, we are frequently a week  to 10 days getting local mail, sometimes  longer. I, append a list of mail matter  received here on the IGth inst. as a sample: The Semi-Weekly Colonist, Victoria,  Nov, 22, Dec. 2, 0, .0:'"Turn__.__,��� Nelson,  Dec. -1, 1.1: Miner, Dec. -I, 11; Kootenaiau.  southern part of London.

The engineers were <u<-h slaves  to red tape that they rel'uspd to accent  the offer*, of coal made by citizens..

The Mines of the Slocan  Have so Far Contributed the Bulk of the Months' Exports.  During the past week there was entered  at the port of Nelson for export 092 tons  of ore and matte, the aggregate value of  which was  $07,800.    The figures for ��� the  current month are much below jthe average by reason of the circumstance that no  returns of matte have been received from  the   outport of   Trail  for the  past  two  weeks.     The    mineral   exports    for    the  month show 2078 tons of ore  valued  at  $200,708 and 207 tons of matte  valued at  #HiO,-_(S8.

There  are several other persons besides myself  who are, of course, in a similar predicament. I have called the attention of the  authorities to the 'matter at various times,  but with no practical result, i desire to  make this fact public, or at all events, the  pith of it, as merchants and other business men of Nelson are under the impression that there is"a,.daily mail on the lake  aud cannot understand why it takes a  fortnight in which to get a reply to urgent matters.    Yours truly,  Charles W. Busk.  Kokanee Creek, Dec. 18, 1 SOT.    ���  British. Columbia's Shame.  , Toronto, Dec. -15.��� The Globe, in an editorial headed, "A Ministerial Failure,"'!  says: "The province of British Columbia  has suffered from a most unfortunate provincial regime. It is to be hoped that the  electors will see the advantage of making  a change when the opportunity arrives.  The ministry seems to have been afflicted  with a violent desire to give away, on  every pretext, the. mineral and forest  wealth, which should serve the purposes  of public revenue for generations to come.  The Cassiar Central Railway grants are  but an illustration, perhaps, of the most  striking ministerial disregard for the  public interests. By it Ilerschel Cohen,  from Eugland, will be in a position to  levy a royalty on the output of a large  section of mining land. But there are  charges more serious, in one sense, than  incompetence against the ministry. Hon.  Mr. Turner, the premier, and Hon. Air.  Pooley, the presidentof the council, figure  as the leading men in a company that has  issued a prospectus!, seeking "to sell its  shares in London. In the prospectus it  was set forth that there will be advantages for the stockholders in the 'unique  connection' between the company and  the provincial ministry."  London's Remarkable Fire Department.  The official inquiry into the causes and  circumstances of the great fire in London  brought to light some very ridiculous  exhibitions of the red-tapeisms that obtain in the great city. One witness timed  the arrival of the first engine on the scene  at twenty-two minutes after the alarm  was given. Another witness told how  some of the firemen failed to recognize  the hydrants when they saw them, because theyi were not marked with the  letter  " 11.''  as  in  their  district   in   the  Action has been taken by Wm. Callahan in the Supreme Court, adversing the  claim of Alonzo D. Coplen to the mineral  claims Cube Lode, Cody Fraction and Joker Fraction, for which the latter is  applying for a crown grant.,  Work has been stopped on the Exchange and the property thrown ud,; the  company operating it claiming that there  was no prospect of making it a mine.  Three additional men were put on .at  the Two Friends last week, and it is the  intention of the management to still further add to the force in a short time. An  assay from the recent strike showed 008  ounces silver and 0.-1. per cent. lead.  So soon as a bunk house and other  buildings are.completed at the Vancouver,' on.Four Mile, a large force of miners  will be put to work.  The; Ledge says that the owners of the  Queen Bess mine have an ore body almost  seven feet wide in the No. 2 tunnel.  A Big Mining Company.  The prospectus of the long talked of  and gigantic British American corporation was issued in London on Saturday.  The capital is ��1,500,000 sterling. One  million pounds of shares is offered at par,  the issue being limited to the shareholders  of the London & Globe Finance Corporation. The directors are the Marquis of  Dufierin and Ava, Lord Loch, the Hon.  C. H. Mackintosh, lieut.-governor of N.W.  T., Mr. Edward A. lloare, one of the  directors of the Bank of British North  America, and Mr. Whitaker-Wright,- a  well known London financier. The corporation has secured several Rossland  .and Nelson properties. It also secured as  a going concern the Alaska Commercial  Company, with the townsite at Dawson  City, and claims on the Bonanza, Klclor-  ado, Bear and other Klondyke creeks.

It will cost $20,000  to erect a refinery capable of treating the  .matte produced by the smelter. An  arsenic plant is also to be added to the  smelter. The cost of the arsenic plant  will be about the same as the refinery.  John D. Slbbald Commissioner.  The provincial government has appointed John D.

TO ENCOURAGE THE VOLUNTEERS.  The City Council Decides to Pay the Men For  Attendance Upon Brigade Drills.  At the regular meeting of tin-oil y ������min-  eil Monday afternoon 'alderman T.-i-'z.-l  presented tlie report of th.. -peci-il i-.iir.-  mittee appointed fur the piu-p.,-.)- df drafting a pin ii. with a view to making the  volunteer fire brigade effective.  The committee recommended  that tlm  members of the brigade be paid $2.50 per  man for attendance upon  each  drill, and  that the sum of $25 be paid  to the,'hose  team getting the first water on at a  fire,  and $15 to the team getting second   water  on.     The  committee   also  recommended  that all   necessary   equipment   Miffirhnt  tor 18 men be purchased at once, together  with another thousand feet of ho-e; that  By-law No. 3 be amended so as to make  the recommendations effective; and that  necessary repairs be made to the. fire hall  at once.   The report  was  received   and  adopted.  A communication from the C. P. R,. company, asking to be supplied with water  from the city mains was referred to.the  public works committee.  A  communication   was  received   from  the city solicitor respecting the proceedings iu connection with the expropriation  by  the   city  of   necessary land  for   the  water works system.    The letter was as  follows :   I beg to advise you that I have  nmde an application to the court and have  obtained  leave to pay in moneys in accordance with section   120 of r.he "Lund    ���  Clauses Consolidation Act.   1807," and  it,  would be well to pay in such amount a_  you think would be the award of arbitrators, in case there should  be an arbitration in this matter, and it  would  be well  not to make this amount any Jess than  you consider would be determined upon at  such an arbitration, as by thus doing we  will be able to put the plaintiff to costs of  the action iu case he should succeed upon  his claim.  On motion of alderman Teetzel, seconded by alderman Gilker, it was resolved  "that the sum of $750 be paid into court  re the claim of the Nelson City Land and  Improvement Company for the site of the  waterworks reservoir and right-of-way  for waterworks flume, and that an order  for that amount, signed by the mayor and  city clerk, be drawn on'the city treasurer, and that a check therefor be issued.  A letter was received from W. C. McLean Ac Company, asking that the city  take over the tools used by them on their  contract for laying wate'r pipe, ft was  referred to the public works committee.  On motion of alderman Ilillyer, seconded by alderman Gilker.it was resolved  that Edward A. Crease be appointed re- x  turning officer for the next municipal  election, and that J. Kieth Reid be appointed deputy returning officer for the  "West ward at the same election.

As there  was nothing in the book to indicate to  whom.it belonged she spoke to the pastor  and suggested that he announce the fact  of her find on the following Sunday. He  did it in this way: "The person who  dropped a small bible, in flexible cover,  in the main aisle at last Sunday's service,  can go to Helen Hunt for it.". Then he  wondered why everybody smiled.  The Vacant Judgeship.  The friends of; Gordon Hunter are endeavoring to secure his appointment to  the vacancy upon the supreme court  bench, occasioned by the retirement of  justice McCreight. Gordon Hunter is said  to be the best qualified of all-aspirants,  but it is said by the knowing ones that he  lacks the pull, and that Irving, of the  firm of Hochvell, Irving & Dull', will be  appointed.  The Spinks Investigation. ,  Justice McColl. who has been appointed  commissioner to enquire into the administration of justice by judge Spinks, took  evidence in the case at Vernon on Wednesday. He will sit to hear evidence at Midway on Tuesday. Chas. Wilson, Q. C,  will represent judge Spinks, and Alex.  Henderson will be present on behalf ot  the minister of justice.       ���  To Mine 600 Tons Per Month.  A contract has been let to C. E.

The'dis-  cussion in Ontario in  favor of the establishment, of provincial divorce courts was  recently started by judge McDougall.   ITe  has gone on  record  as being in favor of  having   a   divorce   court   to   which    the  humblest citizen  could  go and have his  case decided without having to be at the  expense of applying to the Dominion parliament.    Jf the law in regard  to divorce  in   Canada   is   a   good   one,  no obstacle  should be opposed to the creation of the  proper and necessary machinery for giving the people the  benefit of that law.  There is no reason   why  the province of  British Columbia should  call in question  its own jurisdiction  in  divorce matters.  For years it has maintained the right to  grant divorces.    This may not fit iu with  the ideas of chief justice Davie, but it is  satisfactory to the great majority of British   Columbians.   There    is   no  evidence  that the privileges of the divorce court of  the province has been abused, and until  such time matters can  very well be left  as they are.   Tifii Rossi-iAXU Mix Kit, since it changed  owners aud editors, is no longer a newspaper. Jt is simply a nickel-in-the-slot  machine. The people of southern Kootenay supply the nickels and allow an  effigy of an editor to drop them in the  slot. They are all played for the benefit  of F. Augustus Hein/.e and the sous of  the late Robert Dunsmuir. Mr. Heinze  wants provincial bonuses to aid him in  his railway schemes and the sons of the  late Robert Dunsmuir want to keep the  present provincial government in power  in order to evade paying a fair share of  taxation. The people of Kootenay are  credited as being the most self-reliant aud  independent in the province. If they are  as sensible as self-reliant and independent  they will supply but few nickels for newspapers that are endeavoring to make  them mere dependents of railway i'uid  tax-evading schemers. '  As a result of Wednesday's sale of government property fully '$'-50,000 worth of  property, which otherwise would have  escaped taxation, becomes liable for its  share of the municipal burdens. Another  result which may be expected is a stiffening of the values of residential property  within the city limits.  The Kaslo News is in error in its statement   that    the    corporation    of   Kaslo  secured as good a price for its debentures  recently sold, as was secured by the City  of Nelson  for the sale of Xelson debentures.    Kaslo received USA percent of the  face value of its debentures, which  bear  interest at 0 per cent.    Xelson received OS  per cent of the  face value of its debentures, which bear- interest at 5 per cent.  'For its $12,000 .worth of debentures Kaslo  received $ 11,800, and it became liable for  $7200 interest in  ten  years.    Had tlie debentures been sold upon  the same terms  as   those of   Nelson,   the  corporation  of  Kaslo  would  have received $10 less,  or  $11,760 for its $12,000 worth of debentures,  but it would have became liable for but  $0000 interest, or $1200 less than it is  under the present arrangement compared  \\'ith Nelson. As matters stand Kaslo has  the advantage of spending $40 more than  Nelson would, but this privilege will cost  the municipality $1200 in interest charges.  The credit of the municipality of Kaslo  has made great strides within the past  year, but it is not yeit equal to that of the  City of Nelson. No city of the same size  in Canada has better credit than Nelson.  Til_ editor of the Vancouver World is  a   wonderful   reasoner.     In   announcing  that the.British Columbia three per ceut.  bonds are quoted  in London at 105, he  states that this circumstance is the best;  possible evidence that premier Turner is  the  right  man  in  the right place.    The  World overlooks the fact that the figures  speak rather of the value and permanence  of the provincial assets than of the premier's skill   in handling them.    Had the"  moneys  borrowed   by   the  Davie-Turner  combination   been   spent on   productive  works,    instead    of    on    non-productive  works  for  the sole   purpose   of   bribing  doubtful constituencies, it is safe to say  that  the credit of   the   province   would  have  been  higher  than   it  is.    Had   the  government  framed   its   railway   policy  with a view to conserving the interests of  the people instead of furnishing spoils for  political pets and charter-mongers,  it is  safe to say that the province would have  had much less need to borrow money, and  would therefore have been less concerned  respecting   the   terms   upon    which   the  money-lenders of Loudon would advance  it.   The ability or lack of ability of the  minister of finance and premier is shown  in  his  handling  of the  revenues of   the  province.   The resources of the province  and  the price of money very largely determine the   value   set   upon   provincial  bonds.    If the Vancouver World can discover any ability in premier Turner's wild  guesses at probable revenue and probable  expenditure it will accomplish more than  anyone else in British Columbia.    An able  statesman would not be forced, as premier  Turner is forced, to purchase the support  of a  mercenary press for the purpose of  covering up his blunders.  Till, eccentricities of the Nelson Miner  are amusing. In -Saturday's issue the  editor of the Miner directed a fire of withering sarcasm against the Spokane Review for its advocacy of Spokane as a  starting point for all bound for the Klondyke. During the same week the owner  of the Miner was in Spokane and warmly  commended the enterprise of Spokane's  merchants in their efforts to popularize  the Spokane route: This divergence between the editorial and oratorical departments of the Miner is embarrassing, in  that it places the responsibility upon  readers of the Miner of deciding that very  'complex question -which is the fool ?,  Tnio foolish interference of the Provincial board of health with the cities of the  interior, iu  their efforts to secure necessary   sewerage   facilities,   will    bear   its  legitimate fruit at the next general election.    The action of the provincial board  in this respect is both unwarranted and  idiotic.    In Kamloops it has had the effect  of practically bringing the municipality's  efforts to secure a suitable sewerage system to a standstill.     The majority of the  ratepayers of that city are averse to installing any such expensive system as the  provincial  board   requires.   They  prefer  to  wait until  a  new  legislature has an  opportunity of relieving the cities of the  interior from the persecutions of a practically   irresponsible   board,  which   was  created for the sole purpose of enabling  Dr. Davie and other political pets of the  Davie-Turner  combination  to   draw   fat  salaries from the provincial treasury.    In  commenting upon   the present  situation  in   Kamloops  the Sentinel  says:     "We  From   now   until  we  will  offer our  Shoes at  Grkatly Rkduckd  Prices.

The  66  Shoe  Go,  WKST J1AKKR STREET  " believe that drainage into the river  " is the only plan that will ' receive the  " support of the majority of property  " owners, and until the restriction pro-  '��� hibiting that method is removed the  " construction of a sewerage system will  " have to remain in abeyance. It is there-  " fore imperative that steps be taken to  " impress upon the provincial board of  " health and the government the necessity  " of a change in the regulations. We  " would suggest that this city co-operate  " with the cities of Nelson aud Kaslo, in  " this matter, as a united effort may  " bring the authorities to their senses.''  The political economist of the Nelson  Miner, in his strictures upon the city  council for alleged extravagance in the  conduct of municipal affairs, takes the  council to task.for the employment of inspectors upon the construction work in  connection with the waterworks and  sewerage systems. The Miner in this connection goes on record as being of the  opinion that the city engineer should be  able to personally oversee liume building  at Anderson creek, reservoir construction  near .Mountain siding, water and sewer  pipe laying throughout the city, and  sewer pipe laying upon the lake flat. The  absurdity of this contention will be apparent to all who have the slightest acquaintance with, municipal work.  It is anuounced from Ottawa that the  federal government will cause an enquiry  to be made into the manner in which  navvies are treated upon the grade of the  Crow's Nest rail way. This will no doubt  be cheering news to those who have been  and continue to be the victims of the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's misrepresentations. The next thing to secure  will be an impartial commission. Once  the prevailing conditions are thoroughly  understood it may be taken for granted  that a material betterment will be secured  in the condition of the poor devils who  are at present endeavoring to meet the  exactions of the railway company out of  their miserable allowiince of $l.o0 per day.  The Rossland board of trade has condemned the Companies Clauses Act, 1807,  which was passed by the legislature last  session after having been revised by chief  justice Davie. A. C. Gait and A. II.

The members of the volunteer fire department had their first out-door exercise Wednesday evening. The boys made  the run to several of the hydrants and  familiarized themselves with the work of  attaching the hose and turning on the  water. Exclusive of the chief', who is a  salaried officer, the brigade at present  consists of thirteen men, and an effort  will be made to increase the number to  eighteen.

Hooker lias an auctioneer's license  and he was carrying on n retail business  on the strength of this. Wednesday eve-  uing, while auctioneering off goods in his  store on Baker street Hooker was very  abusive in his remarks respecting the  chief of police and the members of the  city council generally. He adopted a different tone when he came before police  magistrate Crease, pleaded ignorance of  the by-law, took out the required license  and was allowed to go upon payment of  the costs.
